Wife in Name Only - Hayson Manning

The Book
Release Date: 20 April 2013

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Zoe Hughes escaped to make a new life for herself on the tiny island of Tonga. Now she runs a successful boutique honeymoon resort. Selling true love is easy. No one needs to know she's married in name only. At least until America’s premier honeymoon magazine wants to publish a feature on her perfect marriage. Now she must convince her estranged husband to rip himself away from plotting corporate takeovers in LA to save her island paradise.

Rory agrees to come for forty-eight hours, but only because he needs the positive PR. To his surprise, the wife he finds in Tonga isn’t the same woman he married. Now she’s so much more…

When a storm strands Rory in Tonga, will he win back his wife or leave paradise empty-handed?

My Opinion  2 STARS

**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review*

The only really good bit about this book was at the ending.

It seamed that we missed the main good bits from this couples story, the getting together and the splitting apart.  None of the reminiscing really told how and why they 'parted' as  they did with enough detail.  We didn't get enough to say what this love was based upon, when it seemed it was just lust.

The telling of the story felt stunted and slightly forced and did not flow smoothly, even the sex scenes felt rushed over.

I was disappointed by by this book.
